Earlier this month, famed Japanese bookstore Kinokuniya opened a new store in downtown Portland. Centrally located near Portland’s Director Park (and new Visitor’s Center), Kinokuniya offers a wide variety of books, stationery, and gift items.  According to Kinokuniya, the store will offer art and comics from Japan as well.  This store is Kinokuniya’s second Portland area location, the first store being located inside Beaverton’s Uwajimaya supermarket.

Portland’s Japanese-themed Behind the Museum Cafe will open a second location within Kinokuniya’s space. Hokusei North America has worked with the cafe in the past and wishes it the best of luck in its new location.
